Since I love make up and beauty I’ve decided to write a beauty blogpost on a regular basis. Starting with one of my new beauty buys: the Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick in Nectar.
After using this blush for some time, I thought it’s time to review this pink little number. The packaging is very cute, but as you can see, it get dirty really easy if you carry it around in your bag.
The blush has a little mirror in it, and as soon as you open it, it really pops…don’t you think?
This is an extremely pigmented blush! Even if I just gently apply the tip of my brush to the palette, I still need to tap it off and make sure to blend like crazy. I really like the pigmentation, I don’t have to apply a lot to get a nice result, so I don’t get a caked up face and this product will probably last me a long, looooong time.
Applied on a full face of make up and blended to the max. This blush is a long-wearing, it’ll last up to 7 to 9 hours.
I have to admit, I’m a bit of a make up addict. I can honestly say I already own quite a few shades of pink lipsticks, but oops..I did it again. These two are quite budget friendly for a change!
I went for a Sleek True Colour Lipstick in ”Mystic ”, A matte, blue based matte pink/purple-ish colour and a Barry M in ”Pretty Pink”, which is a light pink colour.

Last week I decided my make up stash could use an upgrade. So I did a little bit of online shopping and bought these new Real Techniques ‘Duo -Fiber’ brushes. The brushes are entirely synthetic, but boy are these soft. So my first impression: I love them. Also: I bought the Real Techniques Make Up Sponge, their dupe for the Beauty Blender. I’ve never had the original, but again, first impression: LOVE. The other thing I also bought was this bright pink blush by the Balm, pigmentation is amazing, and this is really my favorite blush at the moment. So, can’t wait to use these products some more!
